Obituary of Jim Horon

Please share a memory of Jim to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Jim Steven Horon passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 18, 2024 at St. Joseph’s General Hospital in Vegreville at the age of 57. He was born on January 15, 1967 in Vegreville to Ed and Hilda Horon. He is survived by his children, Courtney and Dylan, an older sister Bernice Langkow, younger brother Randy (Jennifer) Horon, nephews Christopher Langkow, Gavin and Oliver Horon. He was predeceased by many close relatives, in particular his beloved Aunt Linda Warawa, who we know he is catching up with at this moment. The best days spent with dad were nothing short of adventurous, full of belly laughs and jokes, learning experiences, smiles and spontaneity. From putting Dylan behind the wheel of a combine at age 5, to pulling us out of school early so we could have an extra day at the lake, he always had the perfect combination of a “life’s too short” and “everything’s a lesson” mentality. His classic “how you doin” Joey Tribbiani impression was one of his many witty sayings, that always followed with a laid back, wholesome conversation. A lover of denim jackets, snakeskin cowboy boots, classic trucks, 80s rock and Shania Twain, he has molded us into a replica of all the best parts of him. He had a soft spot for furry friends, sweet treats and road trips that often lead to new places and memories. Throughout the years, you could often find him working late in the field during harvest, lounging in the sun in his favourite red and white striped chair, or in the garage sharing stories. While many knew his outgoing, charismatic, sometimes mischievous personality, he also had the most tender and thoughtful heart. He cared deeply for those he loved, always willing to do whatever he could to put a smile on their face. Soft and compassionate, he always ensured everyone was taken care of, placing their needs before his. His love will never be forgotten. Jim’s ashes will be placed to rest at the Plain Lake Cemetery. The service will be private. The family thanks those who respect their wishes at this time.
